Improves Health

Lack of childhood health is a growing issue all around the world, but is especially prevalent in the United States. One of the biggest challenges? Getting kids active. As they have greater access to technology, children are spending more and more time in front of a screen and less and less time participating in physical activities. If you’re encountering this issue in your child’s life, karate may just be the solution you’re seeking. Not only does martial arts reduce stress, but it provides benefits in one’s cardiovascular health, stamina, flexibility, strength, reflexes, and weight management.

Builds Self-Confidence

The health benefits of karate go far beyond the body – this sport is good for the brain too! Exercise releases endorphins, also known as the happy chemicals. But martial arts takes this a step further, building confidence in its students. Many of our students begin their journey with us as shy and timid individuals who are highly insecure in themselves. But with every class they take, they grow in ability and confidence. Karate pushes students to do things they previously thought they were incapable of – helping young people set goals for themselves and achieve them. This newfound sense of confidence helps our students stand up for themselves, empowers them to ask questions and excel in school, and improves their ability to make friends.

Promotes Values

Your child probably has a lot of different options when it comes to their next sport. So why karate? Well, we have something all of those other activities don’t – our values. Since the martial arts are founded in traditions of respect, discipline, hard work, patience, and confidence, it’s no surprise that this sport is known for the life lessons it instills in its students. Your child may not become a professional martial artist, but the principles they learn in the dojo will carry over to all areas of their life – from school, to the workplace, to their friendships and relationships. Enroll your child in karate today and give them the gift that keeps on giving.
